Every campus could use a little magic. If the Disney princesses went to graduate school, what kind of students would they be? Read on to see how these brainy beauties would fare at Disney U and which co-ed sounds the most like you.
Major: Business Management
Don’t let the porcelain skin and cherry lips fool you; Snow White was born to lead. A natural resident assistant, she’s able to work with diverse personalities (Who else can make even Grumpy smile?) and keep a dorm operating like a well-oiled machine. Before hitting corporate America, though, she’ll need to toughen up and realize that not everyone who knocks on her office door has good intentions.
Drawing on her rags-to-riches experience, Cindy focuses on the divide between socioeconomic classes. She dazzles in seminars, almost as if a fairy godmother prepared her perfectly. Deadlines, however, are her weakness. Likewise, a tendency to leave items behind often necessitates princely classmates running after her to return a notebook or laptop.
Major: Music Studies
With a voice like hers, she’s the lead lady of every play. Not content to simply be a star, though, the ambitious red-head works hard in her composition classes because she wants to write a Broadway musical someday. Unafraid to challenge authority, Ariel’s inquisitiveness often sparks lively class discussions. When she’s not jamming with a hot crustacean band, this princess likes to explore everything campus has to offer – she even finds cafeteria forks fascinating.
She’s had her nose stuck in a book since childhood, so Belle feels at home in the campus library. She completes homework beyond expectation by happily reading assigned novels at least twice. Never one to judge a book by its cover, Belle’s study group contains an assortment of fascinating characters. She also edits the campus literary magazine, and her gentle yet constructive criticism brings out the best in aspiring poets. Her weekends, however, belong to one particular Big Man on Campus, and the two have a beast of a time letting loose on the dance floor at neighborhood clubs.
Major: Environmental Science
When she’s not busy reading the latest global warming research, this Native American princess is one heck of a campus activist. She’s lobbied the administration to put recycling bins in every building, developed procedures for ethical testing of animals in the science labs, and started a petition to get the dining hall to serve organic foods. Also quite an artist, Pocahontas spends her free time in the university’s gardens painting with all the colors of the wind.
After coming to terms with her traumatic childhood, Elsa is eager to become a therapist and help others learn how to “let it go.” To make up for lost years, Elsa spends much of her time with beloved sister Anna. The two enjoy nothing more than building snowmen on the quad or hitting the slopes with the university’s adventure club. (The cold never bothered them anyway.)
Building on her own success at changing the marriage rules in Agrabah, this outspoken princess wants to create a whole new world filled with equality and justice. She’s the one students want on their side during classroom debates. When the stress of studying becomes too much, Jasmine loves taking an off-campus spin on a magic carpet with Aladdin (who is shedding his “street rat” image by pursuing veterinary studies, much to Abu’s delight.)
The near disaster caused by pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel spurred this gal’s interest in designing better, safer products. But she’s also a gentle, dreamy soul who manages to squeeze a poetry class or two into her academic schedule. Now if she could just find a way of staying awake during long lectures and late-night study sessions…
